Don’t crowd me!

Don’t crowd me!

Many cars are nearly a foot wider than similar models manufactured a few decades ago. If you don’t believe me, check out the chaos in the nearest parking lot; there’s a good chance you’ll see cars wedged too close together. Last week I returned to my car after a long day at work only to […]

Pokémon STOP!

Pokémon STOP!

No, please don’t stop playing. It’s fun hunting all across town and country for Pokémon critters of every kind.
